Rivett is a suburb in the Weston Creek district of Canberra that is bounded by Hindmarsh Drive, Darwinia Terrace, and Streeton Drive. Its surrounding suburbs are Chapman, Duffy, Fisher, and Weston. The suburb’s namesake was Sir David Rivett, an academic and scientist who was an important figure in the history of CSIRO (Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation). Rivett was gazetted in 1970.
Rivett has slowly emerged from the ashes of the worst fire disaster in Canberra's history with the appearance of new homes and small shops on its streetscape. Many would be surprised that Rivett is a highly sought-after market as demand for properties in the suburb had already eclipsed that of the entire ACT.
Though generally more popular among retirees, Rivett is drawing a growing number of young families who would like to settle down at an affordable locality with convenient access to amenities. Rivett has its own shopping centre and is just a quick drive away from the lifestyle options at Cooleman Court in Weston Creek. Rivett also has a wealth of open spaces, parks, and walking tracks. The suburb is home to several playing fields, primary schools, and churches.
